Andina reports that Cusco ministry professionals worked with locals on cleaning and maintenance of Inca storage sites known as colcas.
The work took place at the Muyu Orqo archaeological site located in the south valley of the city of Cusco.
Peru’s National Police was involved to protect participating locals and professionals from threats by those Peruvians who had been evicted to recover the heritage site.
The importance of these initiatives connecting government and local populations in heritage recovery is highlighted by a recent story where trash burning affected an Inca wall in the suburbs of Cusco.
With community participation and training, the benefits of heritage preservation are multiplied through the building of institutional trust.
